    Mad thanks to my thriftmaser (sp?).
    Honestly, I couldn't have asked for better. Haven't tried shit on yet, but if it fits, it's all going directly to the closet.

    Camo is Mark Mcnairy. Love it. Stepping my streetwear game up.

    Thank you anonymous (I know who you are :fistbump: )

    Also, my gift heads out Monday to an undisclosed location....

    Did you open your secret santa already? Are you celebrating Diwali?

    Dec 1 is the cutoff if your secret santa is outside the us. Dec 7 is the cutoff within the us.

    I don't think I've done this before, but here is me dressed in an op shop outfit for work today.

    I was trawling through my room full of op shop finds last night, picked up this one and noticed that it now fits me. So I wore it today. It's a Cantarelli SC made of Loro Piana fabric, a blend of cashmere, linen and silk. The shirt is T&A and the pants are Balmain fine wale cords.

    My introduction into fine clothing has been through this forum lol so naturally I've massacred a lot of these in my days. The worst part is Air-May looks so easy :(

    A sort of e-thrift, from TweedyDon.
    Straight out of the suitcase it arrived in, so maybe needs to be pressed.

    Might need to be taken in slightly around the waist, but I'm wearing it with just a shirt here.

    The downside of mailing your gift super early? Finding something you probably would have included.
